I am currently rewatching a NATGEO program about Indian elephants (2005) that shows elephants attacking people and raiding crops in large groups. It makes me wonder, are the animals finally riasing up against the idea that man has domaine over the earth and the animals. We are destorying their planet and ours; they are just happen to be smart enough to know it.
Animal attacks on humans are not completely uncommon, but I doubt there is any malevolent intentions behind it. As for them "raiding" crops, that's not the word I'd use. They're simpily taking food as they find it, as all animals do. I think it is wrong to read anything into these actions.
Animals have always attacked humans or their chattel, it's why human greed is so intent on eliminating all other animals from the planet in order that we live in a "productive" and "satinitised" environment :(
